Cider Rose Bud

By colmar  

At the weekend and wandering round a boot fair I found a Nikon F401 camera and a couple of lenses. Whilst the 100-300 lens is ok, the Nikon Nikkor 35 - 70 mm I was very impressed with ! This is one of the first shots, straight out the camera and uploaded a little cider rose bud in our garden.

I urge large and for window users f11 and ctrl+ ..... for mac user large and cmd+

Many thanks for the comment and votes on Oban View,and indeed a few other images , all votes and positive comment that can encourage and improve are gratefully received and truly appreciated. Colin and Mari

Good clean image and as you have found the older nikon lens, has loads of punch-I picked up a newish 18-55 DX Lens for very little cash....but it's not upto the standard of detail, of my old 35-135 AF nikkor.
Anyways; I think you have another great image there colin.
